CONCERNED campaigners have called on the people of Dorking to fight plans for a supermarket outside the town centre.
Last week the Advertiser reported on a council deal that could see a new Morrisons store open on the Station Road/Curtis Road depot site.
Dorking SOS, a campaign group which opposes supermarket expansion, is preparing to re-launch in reaction to the latest announcement.
Founding member [NW link=”http://www.thisissurreytoday.co.uk/topics/person/robsedgwick”]Rob Sedgwick[/NW] said the group would look to match the efforts of Save Our Village Environment in Ashtead, where more than 6,000 people signed a petition against plans put forward by Tesco.
Mr Sedgwick said: “You just have to look at Ashtead – what a difference it made there. That is a shining example of the kind of campaign that people could mount.
“It was well run and very well organised. I think the people of Ashtead did everything they could.
